CC Madhya 4.202


kampa, sveda, pulakāśru, stambha, vaivarṇya
nirveda, viṣāda, jāḍya, garva, harṣa, dainya


kampa — trembling; sveda — perspiration; pulaka-aśru — jubilation and tears; stambha — shock; vaivarṇya — loss of color; nirveda — disappointment; viṣāda — moroseness; jāḍya — loss of memory; garva — pride; harṣa — joy; dainya — humility.


Trembling, perspiration, jubilant tears, shock, fading of the bodily luster, disappointment, moroseness, loss of memory, pride, joy and humility were all visible in Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu’s body.


In the Bhakti-rasāmṛta-sindhu, jāḍya is explained as loss of memory brought about by severe shock due to separation from the beloved. In that state of mind, one loses all concern for loss and gain, hearing and seeing, as well as all other considerations. This marks the preliminary appearance of illusion.
